    The Axis I diagnosis (or diagnoses) is the primary diagnosis for most clients. When the client has a depression, an anxiety, a bipolar, a substance abuse, an adjustment disorder, etc., this is where that information is put. When the client also has a personality disorder (or only a personality disorder), Axis II is where that diagnosis goes.

    Axis II is only used to classify personality disorders and mental retardation.

    Axis I is used to classify clinical disorders and other issues warranting clinical attention. It isn't just a dumping ground tho. If there is no Axis I diagnosis, it's usually V coded (since there is one providing for no diagnosis V71.09).

    Axis III is used for medical conditions, Axis IV is for psychosocial and environmental problems (including relationship issues).

    There's a nice breakdown of the Axis and coding procedure on the linked site. Including use of 799.9 (for pending diagnosis), and how things are placed.

    Axis II is used for personality disorders, like borderline personality, schizoid personality, etc. It is also used to list mental retardation.
